AUSTIN, Texas — Editor's note: The video above was published when UT Austin announced classes were moving online.

One day after the University of Texas at Austin announced that classes for the remainder of the spring semester would be held online, St. Edward's University and Austin Community College announced they will be doing the same.

Once ACC's extended spring break ends March 29, most classes will move online beginning March 30 for the rest of the semester. Some classes such as accelerators, labs and libraries will open on a limited basis, the school said.

Information about specific courses and services will be posted on ACC's website by March 25. 

Faculty and staff who need access to the campuses will be able to access all campuses.
